Louis Roederer Brut Premier wins Master at 2014 The Drinks Business Champagne Masters
We are delighted to announce that the Louis Roederer Brut Premier has been awarded a ‘Master’ at the 2014 drinks business Champagne Masters competition.
The competition pitted some of the top names in the region against each other in a blind tasting with a high-profile line up of judges, including Simon Field MW, buyer, Berry Bros. & Rudd; Jamie Hutchinson, owner, The Sampler; Sue Daniels, wine buyer, Marks & Spencer; Rebecca Palmer, associate director & buyer, Corney & Barrow; Michael Edwards, journalist, author, Champagne expert; Anthony Foster MW, director/buyer, Bonhote Foster; Marcel Orford-Williams, buyer, The Wine Society and Patrick Schmitt, editor-in-chief, the drinks business (all pictured).
Our Brut Premier was one of only two Masters in the Non-Vintage section, despite a large number of entries.
Simon Field MW was particularly complementary about the house and Jean-Baptiste Lécaillon’s skills; “Hats off to Roederer’s Brut, demonstrating [chef de caves] Monsieur Lécaillon is primus inter pares when we are discussing Champagne masters!”
